Fear borne of blank sheet

Have got a bad case of artist's block.  It has been so long since I got out my watercolours I can't think what to paint.  Quite fancy sticking to the Faerie theme but am looking for ideas. HELP.

  1. The flora and woodland setting from your Sunday post would make a great environment for faerie folk.

    1. Definitely the background I am thinking of, just not sure what to put in the gaps. Off to do some research. Thanks Patricia.

  2. Flick through one of your art books. When I don't know what to write, I usually get inspired by picking up a collection of short stories.

    1. Took your advice, I think it worked. Only time will tell.

  3. I'm a new visitor to your lovely blog, but I hope you don't mind if I answer your question with a suggestion - paint writer's block! :-) Is it a monster or a faery or some other creature? I wonder what it looks like for you, and if it's similar to the writer's block I have attendant upon me right now :-)

    1. Very good idea. I have got myself started again...took the arrival of the Tiny Pencil Into the woods edition and a swirl around Terri's last posting.

      I have been for a visit to you, what a lovely blog. I envy you your part of the world. We have friends in NZ and it always looks so beautiful

  4. do you still feel blocked? sometimes a word is inspiring. you could flip through the dictionary.... i have been joining a group of artists that give a prompt on Monday and we share our art the following Sat. they are lovely artists, perhaps you would like to join in for motivation and companionship.
